"I (we) LOVED our stay at Claudia's Surf City. This is our second time staying and we couldn't be happier with our experience. The house is adorable and the views are breathtaking. It has something to offer everyone. Truly - heaps of books, a great record collection, hammocks, bocce, insane views, best outdoor shower ever - what more could we want? The wrap around porch was perfect for eating, relaxing, and sorting whatever rocks/shells the kids collected that day. I cannot say enough about the outdoor shower. Loved it so much I showered during a rain storm. The location of the house is close to perfect. Our family (twins-4, daughter-5 and a big super mutt) spent most of our time walking to town and to the beach. Claudia was so great with us and was more than accommodating. Thank you for providing a such a wonderful getaway home!"

"Whitegate Cottage is a perfect example of why we love our VRBO vacations. Where else could you stay in a charming cottage with personal touches, get insider tips on best enjoying the destination and really feel like you are living like a local. (Oh, and be able to bring a beloved pet.) If you like chain restaurants, amusement parks and hotel amenities, this is NOT for you. But if you want to an active, natural getaway in an incredibly scenic spot, Whitegate Cottage would be ideal. We particularly liked waking up to birdsong, having coffee on the deck (always breezy!) and then setting out to explore the island by foot or bike. Vail Beach and Rodman's Hollow are near by and afford stunning views. The ship's ladder to the second floor may make this property unsuitable for some--but we found that climbing it was great exercise. The cottage also doesn't have a stove, but we successfully made pasta on the hot plate. And, at the end of the day, the outdoor shower was awesome!"

"Our first trip to Newport-- could not have been better. We felt so fortunate to be able to open the front door every evening and call this place "home" during our stay. The beautiful decor and warm colors welcome you in and make it hard to leave. Newport has so much to offer, it was a delight to be able to explore it all on foot from this home's perfect location. Our favorite casual restaurant, Brick Alley, was just around the corner.
Helen is an absolutely delightful host! It is obvious to anyone who gets to stay here, that she takes great pride in maintaining her house and doing everything to make sure her guests feel welcome.
If you are thinking of visiting Newport, think no longer about where to stay-- it doesn't get better than this!"

"The house was large with enough space for 5 adults and 2 teens. It was very convenient to the beaches and the center of town for our short stay. The owner was easy to reach and helpful. Thank you very much."
